Creator / Show Hayami
All done? Good. Now...

Show/Sho/Shou Hayami (real name Yasushi Ōhama) is one of the better-known veteran seiyuu in the anime world. He is known for the grandiosity of his voice, which often lands him the role of a Large Ham and goes well with charismatic leaders, whether a Big Good or Big Bad. On the other hand, he can also portray complete psychopathic madmen very convincingly, probably best known for his role as Sousuke Aizen of Bleach. He is married to fellow seiyuu Rei Igarashi, who is best known as Evil Matriarch Precia Testarossa and Alpha Bitch Mira Kagami. Perfect match.

Beware if someone voiced by him seems both good and affable: chances are he will turn out to be a heroic sociopath... and that's assuming he remains a hero at all. Some of the exceptions are the archangel Uriel in the Angel Sanctuary drama CDs, a little emo, but undeniably heroic. Three others are the title character, Exkaiser from Brave Exkaiser, and the title character, Da Garn from The Brave Figher of Legend Da Garn.

He's got rather a lot of fangirls, mainly because of his rich, husky baritone, which they find very sexy. Masakazu Morita called him out on this at one live event, where 90% of the audience practically fainted the moment he opened his mouth. Masakazu jokingly asked him to tone it down lest he steal all the attention, and Show apologized, which only made the girls scream louder.

He adores Toshihiko Seki, his junior.

Since Show likes the "Dr. Hayami" that he was dressed as when he had a guest appearance in Omaera No Tame Darou, he has organized and produced the series S.S.D.S. (Super Stylish Doctor's Story), where Dr. Hayami is a lead role.

Western counterparts include Kyle Hebert and Marc Diraison.
